MFT Sketch Challenge #275

I decided to play along again in the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #275

I am encorperating MFT stamp sets and Stampin Up ink and card stock to create two cards.

 I used a circle die from my stash and a pencil to rough out line how far out I needed to stamp my music notes.
 After I stamped them I doubled checked to make sure I had enough.

I ended up changing my mind about the white back ground and went with a cream color so I restamped it.

I decided this after I chose my pattern paper.
 I added some foam to the back of the panel, it turns out to be 5 1/2 tall by 3 3/4 wide.
 To make it easier to line up I opened the card and held it up side down and aligned the edges starting with the bottom left and working my way up the left side.
 I am using Early Espresso card stock along with cordinating ink for my stamping.

I embossed in white my sentiment for the front of my card.
 Using some more foam to attach the sentiment strip that I have also cut on an angle.

The pattern paper is a Retierd DSP from Stampin UP.
 I wanted the birds to have an embossed look too and if you work quick enough with Stampin UP ink you can clear emboss right over it.
 I stamped and cut a bird and got it pretty good for the first try.  I am going to use the negative to cut out the birds for my cards.
 Line up the negative spot on top of the stamped image.
 And put on top of both the die, it will run threw your machine just fine.
I used old discontinued blendability markers that Stampin UP used to carry to color the birds, you can use what ever coloring medium you have on hand.
I used this MFT stamp set for just the music notes, you can also get the cordinating dies as well, the stamp set is called Contempo Cage

For the sentiments and birds I used this MFT stamp set that also has cordinating dies, its called Tweet on You.

I added some clear wink of stella glitter to the music notes.
